At the end of last week Amazon introduced a new service that competes with similar products from Oracle and IBM. The “AWS Blockchain Templates for Ethereum and Hyperledger Fabric” is intented to be a “fast and easy way to create and deploy secure blockchain networks”. Amazon’s new product now becomes a real option for clients and developers who wanted to evolve in the Blockchain direction.
The launch of Blockchain-as-a-service also shows a real interest in the technology from the enterprise players. Amazon is intensely promoting its partner ecosystem and probably aims at improving the range of usage for blockchain applications. We can surely see some real benefits for the american company, if parteners are able to create a set of Supply Chain Management, Security or Compliance blockchain tools with support for multiple protocols.
One of the biggest problems Amazon (and the other big players in the industry) should overcome is the lack of “blockchain education”. Even if the technology has a lot of potential, many users see it just as a foundation of a new monetary system. But you can do a lot more, especially now, with the support of the largest global infrastructure for building end-to-end blockchain platforms (AWS).
With AWS Blockchain Templates, you can deploy Ethereum and Hyperledger Fabric frameworks using managed and certified AWS CloudFormation templates. AWS Blockchain Templates allow you to focus on building your blockchain applications instead of spending time and energy on manual setup of your blockchain network.
Why should you care about blockchain technology?
Well, because it can offer you, your company or your project an incredible technical support for development. Running distributed ledgers (track ownership and provenance of assets) in such a form means flexibility and scalability.
If you don’t know that much about blockchain and you’ve just heard some bits of information – here and there – maybe about Bitcoin, but you’re curious on how this technology can help your company grow, then you’re invited to get in touch with a software development company. With the help of the experts, you can better understand how to use blockchain, why would you want to use it and how much it costs.
